Support Z Street Non-Profit Status


IRS- Obama's Gestapo

I’m about to embark on a post that is essentially very pro-Z Street. Which should be distinguished from another organization known as J Street. Both organizations claim to be Pro-Israel with a Jewish-American background. Both claim to be Pro-Jewish State. The thing is Z Street recognizes that the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians are dedicated to destroy Israel. J Street is dedicated to establishing a Palestinian State even if that creation leads to the demise of Israel.
 
Now in full disclosure I am not Jewish. My love for Israel and its existence is based on my Christian Right Biblical faith which would label me as a Christian Zionist. That means for me Israel’s restoration to their land and having full sovereignty of that land is a sign that the Second Coming of Jesus Christ will be sooner rather than later.
 
From a Christian Zionist’s perspective Eretz Israel was promised by God Almighty to the descendants of Abraham and on through the child of Promise – Isaac and on through Isaac’s son Jacob and the descendants of his 12 sons who aggregately is the Land of Israel (Eretz Israel).
 
As I was saying I am not Jewish, but since I became a Born Again Christian at age 20 I recall a story told to me in hushed tones when I was a teenager. I can’t remember how this conversation between myself and my Grandmother had taken of the topic of Jews. I do remember my Grandmother (a young woman in the Great Depression era) nearly whispered and I have to rely on a paraphrase:
 
“John, you know we have Jew in our background. Those Jews in our background were German Jews who immigrated to America ….”
 
As a teenage I didn’t pay too much attention to family stories as I should have. I was more interested in going outside with my pals to play pick-up games of football and basketball back in the early 1970s. My Grandmother’s understanding of “Jews” was something she still felt the stigma to mention. Antisemitism had not entered America’s national guilt culturally really too slowly after the horrors of the Holocaust became a confirmed public knowledge until after WWII. Thus the stigma of her generation still led to revealing a Jewish ancestry in hushed tones.
 
Again I have to be honest about the Jewish family tree. My Grandmother was a bit of a stinker. Sometimes she would make up tales as a learning exercise. In my teen days, to put it nicely, I had developed a personality trait of frugality. In those days there was still an abundance of racial slurs of people who were a bit tight with their money or possessions; viz. the Scottish (often spoke of being Scotch in the pejorative sense), the Dutch and – wait for it – the Jews. So in actuality, largely to my teenage inattentiveness, I am not sure was speaking of a family history or telling be more of sharing person.
 
Some years later my Uncle (Grandma’s oldest son, Mom’s eldest brother) had undertaken the hobby of family trees with his second wife (he was widowed). He spoke of our family being related some German Jews that settled in Pennsylvania with the surname Zonhiser (or Zonizer or Zohnizer or etc. – not at all sure of a spelling, my guesses are all my memory of phonetic sounds). Ironically a brief search at forbears.io shows 9 instances in Pennsylvania all in Mercer County. My Uncle would not elaborate especially by time his 3rd marriage (widowed again). Anyway, moving on … back to Z Street.
 
Z Street has gone one step closer to winning a lawsuit against the IRS for refusing to give the Pro-Israel group a non-profit status based on their views; viz. being Jewish and Pro-Israel. From American Thinker:
 
The IRS was almost laughed out of court yesterday when the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments in the case Z Street v. Koskinen [Blog Editor: IRS Commissioner].  Z Street, founded by AT contributor Lori Lowenthal Marcus, is a pro-Israel educational group that applied for tax-exempt status, only to encounter delay.  When it inquired as to the progress of its application, an agent told it that auditors had been instructed to give pro-Israel groups special attention, and that its application had been forwarded to a special IRS unit for additional review.
 
Z Street sued for viewpoint discrimination, a constitutional no-no, and the IRS went to U.S. District Court in D.C., seeking dismissal of the case.  A year ago, a federal judge rejected that dismissal, and the IRS appealed, which landed the case on the docket of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, the highest court in the land other than the Supreme Court.  The appeal, critically, had the effect of halting discovery in the case, which would have allowed Z Street to examine IRS officials, under oath, and to receive internal communications from the agency regarding the special unit and special procedures for handling pro-Israel groups.
 
The Wall Street Journal’s Review & Outlook column reports on the incredulity with which the three-judge panel greeted the IRS’s arguments.  This was a truly extraordinary event, for it is a rare day that a high-level court reacts so negatively to the positions taken by the federal government.
 
 
The IRS still has the option of appealing to the Supreme Court, further delaying discovery.  Obviously, the game is to delay disclosure of embarrassing IRS policies until after the 2016 election.  But the strong language used by the Fifth Circuit makes it less likely that SCOTUS will hear the appeal. READ ENTIRETY (IRS arguments draw derision from D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals; By Thomas Lifson; American Thinker; 5/7/15)
 
Here is Lori Lowenthal Marcus, the founder of Z Street, on the Leftist agenda of J Street:
 
We see J Street as being very similar to the Arab leadership. This means that they are very happy to say one thing in English and something completely different in Arabic. J Street says something for general consumption; they say that they are pro-Israel. They say that they are Jewish. However, in fact Judaism seems to play almost no role. They talk about Jewish values but they use a scalpel and remove any of the Judaism part of Jewish values. What is left are simply “social justice” issues. That’s a huge concern. It is appealing to lots of people if you say the word Jewish but remove the Jewish content. I think that is very dangerous because you are allowing people to think that they are acting on Jewish impulses when in fact they are taking actions that are anti-Israel and actually contrary to Judaism. We believe in defending the Jewish state as a pro-Israel Jewish viewpoint and value. J Street is sending the opposite message. I think that is very dangerous. The reason they are still around, the reason they burst on the scene in such a huge way and at such a high level is because of the millions of dollars behind them. J Street had the backing of people with enormous amounts of money. By that I mean George Soros. He gave money later but he did provide his reputation early on. That is why they have staying power. It is very hard to compete with millions of dollars, fancy parties and lots of attractive glossy advertising, mailing and promotional material. All of that is very seductive. J Street is a very seductive organization that is devoid of Jewish values and pro-Israel sentiment. (Z Street: A Pro-Jewish Pride Organization in the Spirit of the Bergson Boys; By Jerry Gordon; New English Review; 4/2011)
 
Even though this Jerry Gordon post was written in 2011, a little further down the post Gordon asks a question that should give you a clue for the IRS has lumped Z Street with Conservative and Tea Party organizations seeking a non-profit status from the IRS:
 
Gordon:  Why do you believe that the Obama White House views J Street as the “go-to American Jewish Organization” and not AIPAC?
 
Marcus:  Because J Street reflects the views of the Obama Administration and not what is best for Israel.   AIPAC is all about promoting a strong Israel- U.S. relationship. J Street is all about promoting a strong Barack Obama. (Ibid.)

Judges Destroy IRS Defense in Political Targeting Case
 
By Alana Goodman

The Internal Revenue Service stunned a panel of D.C. Circuit Court judges on Monday by implying that it could discriminate against certain groups seeking nonprofit status for up to 270 days, according to the Wall Street Journal.
 
The three-judge panel was hearing a case related to Z Street, a pro-Israel group that is suing the IRS for discrimination after its nonprofit application was held up by the agency. Last May, a federal judge tossed out the IRS’s motion to dismiss the suit, but the agency is appealing the decision.
 
The IRS’s legal strategy has been to claim Z Street is suing to obtain non-profit status. According to government rules, a nonprofit applicant has grounds to sue the IRS if it doesn’t act on an application within 270 days—a waiting period the IRS says Z Street did not meet.
 
Z Street has repeatedly stated that it is suing the IRS for discrimination, not to obtain non-profit status. An IRS official reportedly told the group during its application process that the agency was singling the organization for extra scrutiny.
 
Take Action – Action Alert
 
Abolish the IRS
 
As Senator Ted Cruz said, “the single most important tax reform” we can accomplish is to abolish the IRS.
 
Not only does the United States have one of the most progressive tax systems in the world, but its tax collection agency, the Internal Revenue Service, has been hijacked by the current administration and used as a weapon against anyone who disagrees with Obama’s radical agenda. While at the same time, they allow tax cheats like Al Sharpton, who owes millions in back taxes, to roam free and host a show on MSNBC all because he spews the White House approved propaganda.

Recently, when Lois Lerner and the IRS came under subpoena of the United States House of Representatives for targeting conservatives and limited-government supporters, they managed to “lose” tens of thousands of possibly incriminating emails.

Enough is enough.

 
It’s time for everyday Americans to take a stand against this crony institution.

Tell Congress to “Abolish the IRS” today!

The Elusive Case of Oscar Hill IV


Evidence of Misconduct banner

John R. Houk

© May 16, 2013

 

I have been following the Oscar Hill IV story for some time. The story if accurate is repugnant for it is a huge miscarriage of Justice. The email and pdf attachment show a different spelling of Oscar’s last name than previous posts I have made on this subject. In the current email Oscar’s last name is spelled “Hill”. In previous stories the letter “s” was how I came to know the name – “Hills”. This could be the reason I have had such a difficult time researching Hill’s case – I don’t know. Below is the copy of the email I sent to Joshua Spielman relating to the email and pdf document (Only I changed the my email address because I sent him a more personal address):

 

Mr. Spielman I have actually tried to follow the story of Oscar Hills IV. It has always been a difficult subject to research with a search engine because the Mainstream Media seems to have not found it on their radar. The two stories I have posted are “Oscar Hills IV: Persecuted or Prosecuted?” dated 5/25/11 AND “Gayle: Oscar Hills IV” dated 6/29/12. I am really uncertain how anybody has found my blog (SlantRight 2.0) to send me these elusive updates. Perhaps you can point me to some further information available online that will make me feel good about corroboration even if it is the other side of the story? At any rate I will format the pdf file you sent me and post it.

Thanks
John R. Houk
john@slantright.com

 

Since I have been writing this post Mr. Spielman has responded that he will keep me up to date.

 

Now one thing I have noticed about the pdf attributed to Oscar Hill IV is his use the name “Ya” in parentheses following the name “God”. My concern stems from the cult spin-off House of Yahweh (HOY) was founded by another Christian cult Worldwide Church of God from Herbert W. Armstrong.

 

The HOY cult uses “Ya” for God and Lord. They also use the appellation of Yashua for Jesus. Both names are used like this in Mr. Hill’s pdf document. The HOY take the belief that Jesus was not preexistent to His human birth. Rather Jesus is the Son of God only in the sense he became a follower of Yahweh after arising from the water from the John the Baptist Baptism. Hence the HOY do not believe in ONE God in three unified persons as in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. As a Christian I have to state these HOY beliefs are unacceptable.

 

AGAIN I must reiterate that I do not know if Oscar Hill IV follows the HOY theology. Indeed the First Amendment guarantees the HOY to practice their faith in Freedom. I just have to wonder if the Louisiana part of the Federal Justice system focused on Hill because of Cult-like behavior and thus fabricated evidence that ended in a conviction that had absolutely nothing to do with Hill’s faith.

 

I give credit to Oscar Hill IV that he is not appealing to religious persecution but utilizes religious terminology as a normal display of his faith whether he follows the basic Christian tenets or HOY-like religious tenets. Under that situation Oscar Hill IV deserves freedom from incarceration and his name must be cleared due criminal conduct from the Prosecutor and the ATFE (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives – better known as ATF) agent Joseph Gahn.

CONVICTION UNCONSTITUTIONAL?

Another Case of Federal Prosecutorial Misconduct – Middle District of Louisiana

 

By Oscar Hills IV

May 14, 2013 9:00 AM

 

Name on Header:

 

Brad Heath

clip_image001USA Today Newspaper

7950 U.S. Today Street Mc Lean, VA 22108

 

BATON ROUGE: First, I like to thank you for accepting my email request. Let me formally introduce myself. My name is Oscar Hills IV; currently I am federal inmate #05251-095. Since 2011, two-years now, my incarceration has been illegal. On May 23, 2011, I literally drove myself to Texarkana FCI in Texas and self surrendered. After sixteen months there, I was transferred (unsupervised Greyhound Bus furlough) to the federal comp in Pollock, Louisiana. Currently, I am at the halfway house in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Mr. Heath, after reading your article, “Locked Up But Innocent?” I must say, you nailed it! However, that is just the tip of the iceberg.

 

Mr. Heath, in “Criminal Law” there’s two classifications of innocence, one, “legal innocence,” and two, “actual innocence.” Legal innocence, defined as the absence of one or more procedural or legal bases to support the sentence given to a defendant. You were referring in your article “Locked Up But Innocent” to this innocence. Actual innocence, on the other hand, is a state of affairs in which a defendant in a criminal case is innocent of the charges against them because they did not in fact commit the crime of which her or she have been accused.

 

ACTUALLY INNOCENT? What if I told you that I am “actually innocent” of the crime I’m currently incarcerated for and the U.S. Government (ATFE agent Joseph Gahn, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Rene Salomon) and State Farm Insurance Co. fabricated their evidence to get an illegal indictment which led to my illegal incarceration.

 

What if I told you that with the same evidence the prosecutors’ produced to the grand jury and the courts’ exonerates me and incriminates them.

 

Aver of evidence is factual and backed by the U.S. Government’s own fabricated evidence; this is not a conclusional assertion. Furthermore, on June 25, 2012, The Fifth Circuit of Appeals granted me a certificate of appealability (COA). Moreover, on August 20, 2012, the U.S. Attorney’s Office conceded to the fact that my conviction is unconstitutional. Yet, eight-months later, I am still illegally being detained. The prosecutors’ asked the Appeals Court to dismiss my appeal, and remand the case back to the district court for a limited view. Rebutting the prosecutor’s request, petitioning the Appeals Court not to dismiss my appeal, I pleaded that the conviction be completely overturned. One, because I was actually innocent, and two, according to United States v. Cronic, 466 U.S., a denial of counsel during trial proceedings requires automatic reversal of conviction because prejudice presumed. The Appeals Court, denied my request, and totally went against Supreme Court caselaw, subsequently, remanding my case back to the District Court, where just several months prior presiding judge James Brady denied my motion to vacate citing I had no merits. Clearly, I recognized the subterfuge of the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

 

April 22, 2013, the deception came full circle when I went for a status conference in the District Court. Out the gate, Judge Brady ridiculed me, stating he was not “going to play this game” with me, he pretty much eluded my actual innocence plea. I reference to the judge that I have done 95% of the time, and my main concern is clearing my name and bringing justice for the outrageous conduct of assistant U.S. Attorney Rene Salomon and ATFE agent Joseph Gahn. Under the Color of Law–these two men, along with others, abused and misused their authority. The court eluded addressing my actual innocence claim. It did not surprise me, I was informed a week before the status conference that my case was the first of its kind. I was also informed that normally the Fed’s are the aggressor, and being that you have substantial evidence of their malfeasance they’re in a peculiar situation. It was explained to me, even though you have the “up’s on them,”  the presiding judge was going  to still save face for  the prosecutor, “it is what it is, especially in the Fed’s,” explained the source. The way the status conference played out, he was right. I being actually innocent of the crime should mean something if not everything, but from the looks of it, it means nothing to the court. Judge Brady scheduled an evidentiary hearing for May 21, 2013, and for the fifth time I will submit to the court the government’s own evidence that exculpates me and inculpates the prosecutor. After 2 years of hell, will I finally see justice, or will this injustice continue? Proverbs 17:15 states: “He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the just both of them alike are an abomination to the Lord (Ya).”

 

Prior to going to prison, I presented this overwhelming evidence (certified mail) to the Inspector General, Daniel Levinson, our so-called ombudsman. Following up on my complaint a representative in the civil rights department claimed she forwarded the information to the appropriate people including the ATFE agency. I personally sent the same information (certified mail) to Kenneth Melson, former head of the ATFE agency, to no avail. Mr. Melson has now been demoted, for his mishandling and non-actions in the infamous “Fast & Furious” gun-trafficking sting operation, in which illegal guns from the operation appeared at many crime scenes across the United States and Mexico. One of the stolen guns killed a U.S. border patrol officer. A whistleblower within their own agency brought to light these unlawful acts of the ATFE agency in Arizona. I even reached out to “every member” in congress (Washington DC) prior to coming to prison but my pleas were ignored’.

 

My situation is not an isolated one by far; there is a reason why 97% of the federal cases result into a guilty plea. Trust me the U.S. Attorneys’ is not that good. Counsel for the defendants’; especially court-appointed counsel, are an extension of the prosecution. Almost immediately in their initial attorney-client meeting, the appointed counsel is pushing a plea deal in the face of the accused. It is all about “VOLUME!” Court-appointed attorneys’ are paid the same amount if they argue the case or get you to take the plea. There is no incentive to exonerate their client, so it’s all based on volume. Picture an assembly line of rubber-stamping plea deals that is all you got going on here. The prosecutors’ get their man and defense attorneys’ are compensated for sending their clients’ up the river without a paddle. All at the expense of the indigent clients’ and taxpayers. There is nothing new up under the sun this is a modern day Sanhedrin Counsel. Yashua (Jesus Christ) called them hypocrites and usurpers.

 

OLIGARCHY FEDERAL JUDICIAL SYSTEM: National media coverage as your article illuminates what is going on in this “privileged only” federal judicial system. You see, once the tables turn on the “Oligarchs'” they only get reprimanded or excoriated. The “Oligarchs'” do not discriminate though; look at Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska case for example. The malicious prosecutorial misconduct was so great; U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder stepped in and asked the judge to dismiss the case after the conviction of the Senator. Stevens’s attorney, Brendan Sullivan spoke out saying: “the illegal verdict of guilty in Stevens’s case had cost the veteran Alaska Republican his seat in the Senate and shifted control of the Senate to the Democrats.” Let us take it even further, if this illegal ordeal had not taken place, Stevens probably would have won his seat back, and would have been in Washington DC, instead of on the plane that crashed and took his life? After the malicious misconduct of the prosecutors’ scheme came to light, one of the prosecutors committed suicide. The others two prosecutors involved in this malevolent act just got an insignificant punishment, losing 40 and 15 days without pay. Then it was back to work as usual.

 

Recently, just down the road in the Eastern District of Louisiana, specifically, New Orleans, Louisiana, another case of prosecutorial misconduct was revealed. U.S. Attorney Jim Letten’s second in command, Jan Mann literally lied to a federal judge. Ms. Mann, in writing, told the court she was not involved with the blogging on several federal cases in litigation. Which was indeed, not true, Jan Mann, was ousted by retired FBI agents that were hired by the defendant Fred Heebe to investigate the U.S. Attorney’s office outrageous conduct, among other things. Subsequently, Jim Letten resigned, claiming he had no idea that his second in command was participating in theses egregious acts. No one in the U.S. Attorneys’ office has been indicted, sorry to say that I suspect no one will be. Yet, there are people in jail for perjury, as I write this letter. Apparently, this does not apply to the prosecutors, just everyone else.

 

IMMUNITY + IMPUNITY = CORRUPTION: When it comes to federal prosecutors, and agents they “enjoy qualified immunity.” Federal judicial employees have “free will” to do whatever they please and do not suffer any punishment for their mischievous actions, they are practically untouchable. My life my home was invaded because of one agent’s abuse of power, ultimately losing over two years of my freedom. To add insult to injury, at the status conference, there sit the special agent Joseph Gahn. Observing, making sure the court carry out his subterfuge. Will district judge James J. Brady continue to go along with the government’s modus operandi? Will he finally render true justice and overturn my wrongful conviction? Only time will tell, May 21, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. cst.

 

BANKING ON BONDAGE: Incarcerating folks is a multibillion dollar a year business. Make no mistake about it. The Prison industry creates and maintain jobs–forfeitures of property and assets–which federal employees’ get first dibs–$25k plus annually of taxpayers’ money for housing each inmate–commissary–outrages phone and email rates for inmates produces millions of dollars a month–“their” selected vendors’ get paid top dollars for expired or close to expired food to feed the inmates. Rural towns are surviving off prisons; the prisons have more people in them then the actual town. The United States imprison more people both per-capital and in-absolute term than any other nation in the world. Reading an article by Cindy Chang in the New Orleans Times Picayune newspaper–the state [Louisiana] I am from is the prison capital of the world.

 

Infer; this is just a compendium of what is taking place in the land of the free and our so-called justice system. I have acquired a wealth of knowledge that I will share with the American people. In the name of justice, they are (the Oligarchs’) acquiring wealth and power through bondage. It is my obligation to God (Ya) and the American people (99%ers’) to fight this injustice and promote peace. I am formally announcing that I will run for the presidency of the United States in the year 2016.

 

“The energy, faith, the devotion which ‘I’ will bring to this endeavor will light our country and will serve it–and the glow from that fire can truly light the world.” (paraphrasing President John F. Kennedy)

 

Peace be with you!

Obama Openly Moving to Dark Side?


Obama-Shred-Constitution by EO

John R. Houk

© April 4, 2012

President Barack Hussein Obama has shown his true colors when he informed the Supreme Court they did not have the authority to overturn Obamacare as unconstitutional. The Left and this President in particular has been shredding the Constitution for nearly a half-a-century. We Conservative have cried foul for about the same time and labeled the Court system that justifies the Leftist agenda as judicial activism. We Conservatives have put with Leftist judicial activism realizing that the courts have been politicized by Democratic Party Presidents and Democratic Party majority rule in the Senate.

It has became clear that the only way to counter Leftist judicial activist constitutional shredding is for GOP Presidents to balance America’s courts with Conservative Original Intent Judges. Thanks to President Reagan and President Bush the Supreme Court has a relatively 5 majority Conservative Original Intent Justices versus to 4 Leftist Living Constitution Justices.

Now that judicial activism might counter a Leftist agenda on a huge scale for the first time in about 50 years BHO is crying foul trying to paint the Supreme Court as a bunch of activist Justices. The reality is that SCOTUS has that thin one vote lead with one of those Justices siding with the Conservative side sometimes and with the Leftist side sometimes.

We Americans have to ask ourselves: What will President Barack Hussein Obama do if Obamacare is struck down by a 5-4 vote? The President certainly sounded like he was providing a veiled threat, right?

FOX Video: Firestorm over Obama’s comments about Supreme Court

Now since the original Obama threat, the President has backtracked somewhat by clarifying his anti-SCOTUS remarks. BHO says he will of course abide with whatever SCOTUS rules. YET BHO claims Obamacare is a commerce issue and as such believes SCOTUS has never overruled the Federal Government when the Executive and Legislative Branches have legislated laws according to the Commerce Clause.

Constitution: Article 1, Section 8, Clause 3:

(Clause 1) The Congress shall have power ,,,

 

(Clause 3) To regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes;

This FindLaw article on the Commerce Clause and the Supreme Court demonstrates that Obama is outright lying in public because SCOTUS indeed has struck down Federal Laws that were wrongly based on the Commerce Clause. And I am not talking about ancient judicial decisions but as short a relative time as 1995. Now I am saying “outright lying” because as a lawyer Obama was trained on Constitutional Law. This means he was lying in public to convince voters that Obamacare is legislation on the high road that should  be untouchable.

Further Obama lied that Obamacare was passed with broad Congressional support. Here Obama must be hoping Americans must have a short memory that there were backdoor sweet deals for various Senators’ States to get a vote to pass Obamacare. THAT IS NOT BROAD CONGRESSIONAL SUPPORT!

The three Judge panel of the 5th Circuit U.S. Appellate Court has issued an order to:

In the escalating battle between the administration and the judiciary, a federal appeals court apparently is calling the president’s bluff — ordering the Justice Department to answer by Thursday whether the Obama Administration believes that the courts have the right to strike down a federal law, according to a lawyer who was in the courtroom. (CBS via Red State 4/4/12)

I suspect Obama will blink first in a turf war with the Judicial Branch, but if not – What would a Socialist (bordering really close on Marxism) do to fight the Judicial Branch?
